August Music Challenge

Postby pawprints » Wed Aug 09, 2017 6:31 pm

It's finally here Cherries! I will be giving extra time since I'm posting this so late.

This month is all about the Dirty Dancing Soundtrack. Your challenge is to use any aspect of it for inspiration. Any song title, any lyric from any of the songs, any of the artwork from the Original Soundtrack album cover or from the 20th Anniversary Edition album cover, any colors, any of the artwork, even the words "dancing" and/or "dirty". Anything from it that inspires you!

Here are both of the album covers:

Here is a listing of all the songs. I used the list from the 20th Anniversary Edition Soundtrack because it has even more songs on it from the movie than the Original Soundtrack does.

1. Be My Baby - The Ronettes
2. Big Girls Don't Cry - Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons
3. Merengue - Michael Lloyd & Le Disc
4. Trot the Fox - Michael Lloyd & Le Disc
5. Johnny's Mambo - Michael Lloyd & Le Disc
6. (I've Had) The Time Of My Life - The John Morris Orchestra
7. Where Are You Tonight? - Tom Johnston
8. Do You Love Me - The Contours
9. Love Man - Otis Redding
10. Gazebo Waltz - Michael Lloyd
11. Stay - Maurice Williams & the Zodiacs
12. Wipeout - The Surfaris
13. Hungry Eyes - Eric Carmen
14. Overload - Zappacosta
15. Hey Baby - Bruce Channel
16. De Todo un Poco - Michael Lloyd & Le Disc
17. Some Kind of Wonderful - The Drifters
18. These Arms of Mine - Otis Redding
19. Cry to Me - Solomon Burke
20. Will You Love Me Tomorrow - The Shirelles
21. Love Is Strange - Mickey & Sylvia
22. You Don't Own Me - The Blow Monkeys
23. Yes - Merry Clayton
24. In the Still of the Night - The Five Satins
25. She's Like the Wind - Patrick Swayze feat. Wendy Fraser
26. Kellerman's Anthem - The Emile Bergstein Chorale
27. (I've Had) The Time of My Life - Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes

Open to paper, hybrid, cards, crafts or whatever this inspires you to create.

Multiple submissions are allowed and I'm upping the limit to 5 this month because there are so many ways to get inspiration from this.

May be combined with one other challenge if that challenge allows it.

I am giving an extra week because I am posting this so late. You have until the end of the day September 7th to post your submissions. A random winner will win a $5 ACOT gift card from me!

I hope you all have fun with this!

Here is my page. I used the song title "Hungry Eyes" for this photo of Twinkie and Sky watching dh carve a turkey. I couldn't have found a more perfect title!

I was inspired by the white album cover to create a sketch to work from. I was going to call this layout Good eats or something like that but the capital D's in the Dirty Dancing title gave me the thought Disney Dining! Feel free to use the sketch.
